Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls by Alissa Nutting
Highly recommended for people who enjoy challenging, innovative, experimental fiction. The stories swing successfully from the comic to the tragic. Frequently bleak but manages to be emotive and tender in places. A brilliant collection of dark and inventive shorts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving story of loss, 23 May 2013
A compelling and enjoyable short story. Like the best magic realism it takes a simple idea - that the memories of a lost love are stored inside a little salt shaker - and uses it to explore more complex human qualities. It is written with a staccato style of writing that suits the story nicely, using tiny sentences like tiny grains of salt. A moving story of loss, thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.
The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman

The Tiny Wife is is a tiny book. I devoured it in a single sitting before breakfast. It is short and delicate but has deceptive depth. Kaufman has written another crystalline allegory that, despite it's few pages, manages to be grimly fascinating, genuinely funny and ultimately affectionate, delicate and very, very sweet.
